Far too many girls face barriers on the pathway to achieving their dreams. Obstacles such as poverty, teen dating violence, and teen pregnancy can get in the way of a girl’s ability to make her dreams a reality. An upcoming event in Cambridge wants to help teenage girls dream big about their future career. Dream It, Be It equips girls to overcome their obstacles, set goals, and head towards success. Soroptimist International of Cambridge is hosting the ‘Dream It Be It: Career Support for Girls’ event at Langs on Nov. 16th.
Although all girls face barriers because of their gender, they prioritize working with girls who have additional obstacles including poverty, unstable home lives, living in foster care, or teen motherhood. Soroptimist clubs work in partnership with girls in small groups or a conference setting to provide them with the information and resources they want and need to be successful.
This free event, which takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will partner up girls with women from eight industry sectors to hear about their experiences. They will be covering topics like;
- Career opportunities
- Setting and achieving goals
- Overcoming obstacles to success
- Moving forward after setbacks or failures
Besides these presentations, girls attending the event can expect to receive a free lunch, craft stations, a speed networking session and more. Those interested in checking out Dream It Be It must register ahead of time for the event. For more information on the on Soroptimist International of Cambridge, go to soroptimist.org.
